/tujpu'/ means that the state of being hot is, was, or will be complete.
"Complete" does indeed imply that the state no longer is. If I say /tujpu'
bIQ/, I'm not denying the possibility that /tujqa' bIQ/, but definitely at
some point /tujbe' bIQ/.
If /tujpu'/ didn't mean that after something was /tuj/ it was /tujbe'/, then
/-pu'/ would be referring to tense, not aspect. /tujpu'/ doesn't mean "at
some point before the current time context something was hot and I'm not
saying whether it is hot at the current time context," it means, "at some
point before the current time context something was hot and then ceased to
be hot, but I'm not saying whether it's hot at the current time context."
